Music Notes

Thank you to Louise Brownsberger for a wonderful offertory on October 23rd, and to Melanie Bacaling for the beautiful song on the 30th. I’m so grateful to have such talented musicians in the church community!
     Mark your calendars! The First Church Children’s Choirs will be presenting Mozart’s Magic Flute on Thursday, November 17 at 5:30 p.m., Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m., and Sunday, November 20 at 3:00 p.m.
     The Magic Flute is the 38th annual children’s musical, and is guaranteed to be a great time for all! Tickets will be available at Coffee Hour Sunday November 6 and November 13, as well as online (uubelmont.org).
     On Sunday, December 11th at 10:30 a.m., the First Church will continue its annual Major Music tradition with the incredible Bach Cantata BWV140, “Wachet Auf.” This incredible work hasn’t been performed here in 20 years, and I’m excited to be able to program it. The Senior Choir will be joined by a professional orchestra led by Ken Stalberg. If you would like to join the choir for this wonderful opportunity, please contact me at igarvie@uubelmont.org.
     The Senior Choir Anthem on November 6 will be “Hark I Hear the Harps Eternal,” a traditional hymn arranged by Alice Parker.
